Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 12 people


  • 2 cups warm water
  • 8 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 6 cups flour
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast


  1. This recipe makes a fairly large batch so you might want to half it if you don't want to make so many.

  2. In a small bowl mix together the water, sugar, and yeast. Set aside.

  3. In another bowl or a mixer, mix together the other ingredients, then add in the yeast mixture. Knead for about 5 minutes.

  4. Let the mixture rise for about an hour, then punch down. Separate into balls and roll those balls into logs.

  5. Lay all of the breadsticks on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer to flash freeze. When they are frozen, take out the pan and you can put the breadsticks in a freezer bag.

  6. When you are ready to make them, take the breadsticks out of the bag and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Let them thaw and rise for about 30-60 minutes.

  7. Then bake at 350F for 15 minutes. As soon as you remove from the oven, brush melted butter over the tops and sprinkle on a little parmesan cheese and parsley.
